Broken: (Just for Fun) Kline Realty advertisement

KlinerealtyadA reader submits an advertisement seen in Brooklyn, New York:

I saw this ad for Kline Realty posted around the neighborhood which made me laugh.

My favorite part of the ad is - "Just type in and when it comes on, turn up the volume and fasten your seat belt or you'll jump up and start dancing."


Actually, a web site with a noisy flash movie without mute or pause button IS broken. Definitely.

Wow. This ad scares me. Using the word sexy to describe a real estate company's website. I never saw it coming.

This must be some site, as I've never found myself wanting to dance over a website. I have to check this out.

Very interesting website. Although if I hadn't already known it was an ad for a real estate company I would have thought it was an ad for Brooklyn. I liked the Bond-esque silhouette of the woman dancing halfway through the video. Totally not in keeping with the tone of the rest of the video. Anyway, I'm glad it's posted in just for fun. I would hate to think that this was meant to be taken seriously.

I don't know, I rather enjoyed the film. While I'm not sure I would call it "sexy" there was nothing really wrong with it. And besides, I suspect that there is no shortage of real estate brokers in New York City so it isn't unreasonable to have a gimmick.... in short, Not Broken.

Yeah any website that has sound on the homepage is Broken, or unsolicited sound... really irritating when researching products/software at work and having the computer all of a sudden talking or playing music, when I forget to mute the speaker...

The 'hood? That is one of the worst places to put slang in.

They are really trying to hard to sound street-like. Way to hard.
